You know CNN is done when the world is falling apart and all the network can highlight is whether Donald Trump flushed documents down the White House toilet.
Former President Donald Trump has denied a report that claimed he regularly clogged the White House toilets by flushing documents.
“Another fake story, that I flushed papers and documents down a White House toilet, is categorically untrue and simply made up by a reporter in order to get publicity for a mostly fictitious book,” Trump said in a statement, according to Fox News.
The story originated in the upcoming book by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. Haberman is also a CNN political analyst.
Haberman said “either notes or some other piece of paper that, you know, they believe [Trump] had thrown down the toilet.”
Haberman also took to Twitter to share the toilet talk. “Here’s some reporting from the book’s later years – White House residence staff periodically found papers had clogged a toilet, leaving staff believing Trump had flushed material he’d ripped into pieces,” she tweeted.
The book, coming Oct. 4, ahead of the midterm elections, is called “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.” The title will focus on Donald Trump, taking “a long look at the arc of his life, from the world that made him in New York City to the world he tried to recreate in the White House,” Haberman said in a series of tweets on Thursday.
When your titles include working at biased “news” organizations CNN and New York Times and you’re dumping on Trump, there’s a good chance the story is full of speculation and perhaps downright made up accounts included.
It wouldn’t be the first time CNN has made up stories regarding the former president. From his fake Russian collusion story, Trump’s four years in office and beyond have been about the only news keeping the liberal network afloat in the midst of its multiple sex scandals.
But even after more than a year after Biden is in office, the network would rather dish out new Trump gossip than address Biden failures. CNN has barely even touched one of the juiciest gossip stories of all, Hunter Biden’s explosive laptop full of details, instead highlighting any Trump-related material to feed its remaining audience.
A conservative journalist this week took a screenshot of CNN’s website and noted that Trump’s name appeared 11 times. Biden’s name wasn’t mentioned at all. This tells you all you need to know about the network. It’s not about reporting the news or what is really happening in the White House. It’s all about blasting Trump and those who support his America FIrst agenda in an effort to keep the left in power, despite the failures of Biden on wide number of issues.
